Multifeature analyses of vascular cambial cells reveal longevity mechanisms in old Ginkgo biloba trees (open access)

Multifeature analyses of vascular cambial cells reveal longevity mechanisms in old Ginkgo biloba trees

This article investigates age-related changes in Ginkgo biloba trees to learn more about the molecular and metabolic mechanisms underlying their longevity. The results revealed that long-lived trees have evolved compensatory mechanisms to maintain a balance between growth and aging processes.

Sub-Antarctic Freshwater Invertebrate Thermal Tolerances: An Assessment of Critical Thermal Limits and Behavioral Responses (open access)

Sub-Antarctic Freshwater Invertebrate Thermal Tolerances: An Assessment of Critical Thermal Limits and Behavioral Responses

Describes study which assessed the upper (CTmax) and lower (CTmin) thermal limits of three freshwater macroinvertebrate taxa with restricted low elevation distribution (20 m a.s.l.) and three taxa restricted to upper elevations (480 and 700 m a.s.l.) in the Magellanic sub-Antarctic ecoregion of southern Chile, and argues that their low tolerance to temperature increase can make them useful as indicators of thermal alteration in their habitats.

Underlying Ossification Phenotype in a Murine Model of Metastatic Synovial Sarcoma (open access)

Underlying Ossification Phenotype in a Murine Model of Metastatic Synovial Sarcoma

This article presents the analysis of genetic mouse models of synovial sarcoma to determine the extent of ossification in the tumors and its relationship with morbidity. The authors noted higher ossification within their metastatic mouse model of synovial sarcoma. Their conclusion is that both metastasis and ossification are dependent on time, but that they are independent of one another.

Exploring NIR Aza-BODIPY-Based Polarity Sensitive Probes with ON-and-OFF Fluorescence Switching in Pluronic Nanoparticles (open access)

Exploring NIR Aza-BODIPY-Based Polarity Sensitive Probes with ON-and-OFF Fluorescence Switching in Pluronic Nanoparticles

The articles is about a study of the response of six NIR aza-BODIPY-based and structurally similar fluorophores to polarity and viscosity for incorporation inside Pluronic nanoparticles as switchable fluorescent probes (SFPs). Based on their results, all of these fluorophores were moderately to strongly sensitive to the polarity of the microenvironment. They concluded that attaching amine groups to the fluorophore is not necessary for having strong polarity sensitive probes.

On Polish groups admitting non-essentially countable actions

Article addresses the question whether every Polish group that is not locally compact admits a Borel action on a standard Borel space whose associated orbit equivalence relation is not essentially countable. The authors e answer this question positively for the class of all Polish groups that embed in the isometry group of a locally compact metric space.

Closed-form expressions for the magnetic fields of rectangular and circular finite-length solenoids and current loops (open access)

Closed-form expressions for the magnetic fields of rectangular and circular finite-length solenoids and current loops

This article discusses closed-form expressions for the magnetic fields produced by rectangular- and circular-shaped finite-length solenoids and current loops. The closed-form expression for the magnetic field of a rectangular-shaped finite-length solenoid is derived using the Biot–Savart law. Closed-form expressions for the magnetic fields of solenoids and current loops can be used to avoid approximations in analytical models and may reduce computation time in computer simulations.

Climate Metrics for C1–C4 Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) (open access)

Climate Metrics for C1–C4 Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)

This article looks at hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) which are potent greenhouse gases that are potential substitutes for ozone depleting substances. The Kigali amendment lists 17 HFCs that are currently in commercial use to be regulated under the Montreal Protocol. Future commercial applications may explore the use of other HFCs, most of which currently lack an evaluation of their climate metrics. In this work, atmospheric lifetimes, radiative efficiencies (REs), global warming potentials (GWPs), and global temperature change potentials (GTPs) for all saturated HFCs with fewer than 5 carbon atoms are estimated to help guide future usage and policy decisions.

West Nile Virus risk and susceptibility in central California modeling dataset

The dataset was developed to support research intended to develop a spatially explicit model that explores environmental data related to the risk of exposure to West Nile Virus (WNV), and the susceptibility to WNV disease based on demographic data of the potentially affected population. The model was developed and then tested on census tracts in an identified hot spot of WNV in central California. The dataset contains (1) U.S. Census Bureau 2010 demographic data for 1,133 census tracks in the hotspot, and (2) and average mosquito habitat risk data for each of those census tracks.

Development of a Thulium Fiber Laser for an Atomic Spectroscopy Experiment (open access)

Development of a Thulium Fiber Laser for an Atomic Spectroscopy Experiment

This article is a simplified analysis of a convenient thulium fiber laser source with 3 W of output power operating at a wavelength of 2059 nm with a slope efficiency of 49% with respect to input pump power and 60% with respect to absorbed pump power. The laser was applied in an atomic helium spectroscopy experiment to quench ³He (2058.63 nm) and ⁴He (2058.69 nm) meta-stable singlets (2¹S0), allowing for further investigation of the helium fine structure.

Prioritizing riparian corridors for ecosystem restoration in urbanizing watersheds (open access)

Prioritizing riparian corridors for ecosystem restoration in urbanizing watersheds

This article explores restoration, rather than protection, being the basis for developing a watershed level strategy for improving water quality in urbanizing watersheds.This study uses a geographical information system (GIS) approach that utilizes riparian characteristics extracted from 40-meter wide corridors centered on streams and rivers. The model was applied to 90 sub-watersheds in the watershed of an important drinking water reservoir in north central Texas, USA.
